That was my question, I guess I was not clear. I was under the horrible impression that hacks were more humane than bits. Wow, what an eye opener. Thanks to all of you I am so much more educated. My question was would be the first thing I wanted to start with. I was assuming she would not use a bit but I will research her back ground more before bringing her home and go from there. We have many different kinds of bits from snaffle on up to try so I have options without spending a lot of money and well if I have to I will head on down and buy her what she needs. I was just under the impression that is used right it would be more humane not to use the bit. Can anyone do a line up of 1-5 or 1-10.... one being less harsh on what to try first and so on as they get more severe?? Would be nice to see opinions on this, thanks everyone in advance and for those comments so far.
